Pat & Corby were incredibly helpful in the successful sale of our business. They also helped us prepare for all of items we just didnt know that we needed to do to prepare for our future and a successful retirement plan. This was an incredible experience. The personal commitment that we received from Pat & Corby were way beyond what we expected. Anyone considering selling their business should start preparing years in advance to increase the value of their company with ENNIS Legacy Partners.
